African clothing trends for summer 2020

As the world's second-largest continent, it's no surprise that trends vary from coast to coast in Africa. While clothes will always be bold and beautiful, we are going to look at some of the trends set to take summer 2020 by storm.

Kimono

Traditionally, the kimono comes from Japan, but thanks to its cool, flowing design, it's become popular across the world. Kimonos come in various lengths, so when choosing yours, it's important to select a fit you feel comfortable with. A staple for any wardrobe, the kimono is versatile, so it can be dressed up for evening glam or pared down for a casual weekend.

Statement sleeves

Loud and fun, statement sleeves are sure to grab everybody's attention this summer. From bell and trumpet to ruffle and bishop, pair your top of choice with a skirt or cropped trousers and aim for a simple silhouette. When you get the rest of your outfit right, statement sleeves can look elegant and sophisticated, especially if you opt for a dress rather than a top and pants combo.

 

Off-the-shoulder

We know that off-the-shoulder tops have been trending for a while now, but they really are a classic for the summer. The daring yet delicate flash of skin at the shoulders is both feminine and eye-catching, and you're certain to command attention if you pair an off-the-shoulder top with high-waisted trousers. This style is so versatile that there are now mini and maxi dresses with off-the-shoulder designs as well, so it will be easy to find the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe.

 

Pantsuits

Perfect for that effortless business look during the summer, pantsuits are set to take the world by storm this year. They have steadily been growing in popularity, and we can't wait to see women rock these to the office as well as meetings and after-work parties. The best thing about a pantsuit is that it can be dressed up or down, and can be carried through to the winter.
